New Adult/Contemporary Romance - Recommended for readers 17 and older
I, Daphne Fox, have a few things to confess:
1. I hate Nick Brady. Loathe. Abhor. Can’t stand him 95% of the time.
2. That other 5%? I’m not talking about that at all.
3. People think I’m lucky for surviving the car crash. I disagree.
4. Nick is the only guy who makes my nightmares go away.
5. I won’t love him, though. Love is not worth the pain.
I, Nick Brady, have a few confessions of my own:
1. I don’t hate Daphne Fox. At all.
2. I find her scar sexy. Just like the rest of her.
3. I may be her older brother’s best friend, but that’s not going to stop me.
4. I love her.
5. And I’m going to do everything I can to have her.
Go With Me is book #2 in the With Me series by Elyssa Patrick. It's a wonderful New Adult contemporary romance. This book centers around Daphne Fox (her brother was the love interest in book #1). I'm really glad Daphne got her own book. I really liked the first book in this series, but I loved this one.
In this book, Daphne falls for her brother's best friend Nick. She has known him for years and has secretly had a bit of a thing for him – but has had trouble admitting it to herself. Mostly, she's convinced that she hates him. He drives her crazy. They fight all the time. Nick, her brother Caleb, and Caleb's other friends are all very protective of her. Ever since she almost died in a horrible car accident, her brother and his friends practically smother her and it drives her nuts.
The synopsis is a little misleading in the fact that this book is only from Daphne's point of view. I thought the synopsis made is sound like it would be a dual point of view. I'm not disappointed though. I liked the book just the way it was, and leaving it to Daphne's POV made Nick a little more mysterious.
Daphne is a great lead character. She's very smart and sassy. Physically, she's not perfect. She has a lot of scars from the car accident. Also, she's a little on the short side and she is curvy instead of skinny. I love how she's not afraid to eat all of the time – even around the guys.
The chemistry between Nick and Daphne just leaps off the pages. I love them together. Their relationship is HOT and swoonworthy. The love scenes were pretty steamy and graphic, so this is definitely an adult read. I love the way that Nick was watching Daphne from afar – patiently waiting on her to deal with her grief (including losing her boyfriend in the fatal wreck). However, he is pretty determined to make Daphne his – and in the beginning of this book he lets her know just how he feels. Daphne eventually admits to herself, and to Nick, that she likes him. Unfortunately, she knows that her brother will flip out if he finds out about her and Nick. She doesn't want to come between her brother and his best friend.
I just love all the characters in this book. I hope they all get their own stories. I'm really looking forward to Jamie's book, which is coming out next. And I think I will just die if Griff doesn't get his own book. He is so quiet and brooding – so it's hard to tell what he's thinking. Elyssa Patrick has several other books out that I will have to try. I believe this author will be going on my must-read list.
